Evening in the Garden Quilts

Adventures in Fabric Art

Old Business


2018-07-22 13.50.44closeHere’s the finished baby quilt I never got around to posting.  Finally getting back into a bit of a routine, although the garden is taking some of my time.

Does it look a little poochy in the center?  The quilting is really uneven, with lots on the squares in the borders compared to the “star bunting” in the center.  After this was taken, I went back and added more swags and more stars, and it’s flatter now.

Is it just me, or are so many panels really long and skinny?  They make funny shaped baby quilts, without some help.  Does the shape work better with bed-size quilts?  But it’s a pretty panel, and flannel!

And everything needs chevrons, right?  I keep waiting, but they’re still all over the Pinterest nursery boards.

This is in my Etsy shop.

May the Sewing Force be with you!

  1. Yes. I think many panels are long and skinny. You made this one proportional and functional. And, the quilting is stellar. I’m sure it will quickly.
